The Priest's Graveyard

Danny Hansen witnessed something as a boy that was so tragic it would alter his life so profoundly it would change the person he would grow up to become. Fleeing from Bosnia to America, he found a richness in becoming a priest. In his mind he felt that it would help him to repent of the horrors he fled from in Bosnia and restore his soul and faith in God.

Only somewhere along the way, something inside Danny snapped. Something that would allow him to justify every action as though he himself was appointed by God to rid the world of evil. This is where the story begins.

Renee Gilmore finds herself seeking confession with a priest. Only the confession she brings him isn't about her, it's about someone else who is seeking answers for his action he can't seem to find himself. Renee holds within her hands, Danny's handwritten confession. What the priest is about to read will make him question the vows he, himself, has taken as a man of God as well. What could be so horrible to drive a boy from his home in Bosnia? What role does Renee have in the confession of Danny Hansen? Who in this world is fit to judge the sins of any man?

In the latest book by Ted Dekker, The Priest's Graveyard, we find out the answers to this nightmare begin to unravel on the pages of this novel. Ted once more does a fine job at keeping the reader guessing so you never quite now what you will end up until the final page. Even then it makes you wonder if you really got it right in the end!

This book does a great job at showcasing how some people's actions may seem justified in their own eyes even though the world around them would see it as evil and criminal. In the end, the reader alone faces the judgment of Danny Hansen and Renee Gilmore. What your outcome of it all, will be left entirely up to you.

I received this book compliments of Hachette Book Groups and Center Street Publishing for my honest review. Being a huge Ted Dekker fan, this one was on my must read list. Finishing the book left me puzzled as though I wasn't quite sure what I just read. But after a good night sleep I could see the point in Dekker's unique ability to take the reader into the unknown places of the human mind. This book rates a 4.5 out of 5 stars in my opinion and is a definite must read for those that love criminal fiction books. This book is available in paperback, hard cover, audio and eBook Reader formats.
